Romeo’s discussion of “untimely death” is an example of what literary device?

BENVOLIO
This wind you talk of blows us from ourselves.
Supper is done, and we shall come too late.
ROMEO
I fear too early, for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night’s revels, and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But he that hath the steerage of my course
Direct my sail. On, lusty gentlemen.
-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Act I, scene iv, lines
113-120.
A. External conflict
B. Simile
